Recently we, a group of 10 friends got together for dinner here. Lively atmosphere with a good vibe! Excellent choice of wine to pair with your food. Since we are all vegetarians, waiter was very helpful in selecting the items from the menu. I would recommend this place.

I never ceased to be amused by restaurants, like this one, which try to offer a real Italian meal also have blasting the best of Aretha Franklin and Temptations.... Notable Italian crooners! The pizza was a huge disappointment, limp and underwhelmed by meager toppings. Two enjoyed calamari/crab appetizer but it was very small.... The focaccia bread and honey began turning... More

The brunch menu has some awesome choices. Try the truffle toast, and definitely order the bacon with tomatoes. Maybe get one French toast (with bananas and nutella) for the whole table. Pizza with prosciutto and arugula was excellent, too.

We were looking for a nice breakfast place and we happened into this restaurant. It was great! What a beautiful ambiance. My husband got the pancakes and they were covered with fresh fruit. I got the Truffle egg toast. It was so good! The asparagus was sliced crosswise and stir fried. It was crisp and tasty. The bread was buttery... More

We ate here on a whim, and we had a nice meal. The quality of ingredients are amazing. Decor is nice rustic, good location. I enjoyed the ricotta and bread appetizer. Thin crust pizza ok. My favorite was the Farro salad, to die for if you like roasted nuts and butternut squash! I could eat that for days. Pastas did... More

We have been to this spot twice and both times have endured the same result. I always like the look of the place which has a rustic vibe, but that is my only major compliment. The restaurant doesn't seem to accommodate a large group so the quality of service suffers. The food was sub-par and one member of our group... More
